Get $5 off Fecal AG testing in June 2017
Announcing the next generation of fecal testing! Our new Fecal Antigen testing can identify the three most common intestinal parasites in pets: roundworms, hook worms and whipworm; can detect worms in present stages, and reduces frequency of environmental contaminations.
Each year, dogs and cats come into contact with some form of parasite, either through taking a walk, traveling, going to the beach, making contact with other pets, wild life, potting soil, and so on. It is highly recommended to have your pet’s stool checked once a year as prevention. It doesn't matter if your pet stays indoors or just goes in the back yard – parasites are everywhere! Many boarding, grooming, training groups, and associations require testing before joining any activity.
Even though your pet’s stool may seem normal, intestinal parasites could still be present. Call us at (847) 299-0135 today to schedule your pet's visit and get an AG stool test! We are offering $5 off all tests taken June 1-30, 2017.

Wright Animal Hospital is an AAFP Cat Friendly Practice!
Wright Animal Hospital has been approved by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) as a Cat Friendly Practice – Silver Status!
According to the AAFP, even though there are millions more pet cats than there are pet dogs in the United States, cats visit the veterinarian much less frequently. This is largely because of the stress that comes with vet visits for cats and their owners.
At Wright Animal Hospital, we strive to make your visit to the doctor with your feline companion as stress-free as possible. We offer a full range of preventive care services to keep your cat living a longer, happier life – as well as a feline-only waiting area and a feline-exclusive exam room!
